NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Donald Trump, his namesake son and his daughter Ivanka have agreed to answer questions under oath next month in the New York attorney general’s civil investigation into his business practices. That’s unless their lawyers persuade the state’s highest court to step in. A Manhattan judge signed off Wednesday on an agreement that calls for the Trumps to give depositions starting July 15. The agreement comes after a series of setbacks for Donald Trump’s efforts to block state Attorney General Letitia James’ three-year-long investigation. Wednesday’s ruling acknowledges that Trump can appeal to New York’s top court, called the Court of Appeals.
